I believe this is a known problem with the changelog and copyright
links.

When I raised the issue, the general answer was that it wasn't worth
keeping an extra copy of the required files around, just to keep the
versions consistent. Not that I really understand the details, but it
was enough to satisfy my curiosity.

Have a look at the debian-devel archives (not sure when, sometime this
year, or December last year I think) for details. Or perhaps I filled
a bug against www.debian.org. Sorry, I can't remember now.
